Trust No One: Trust No Thing
Worldwide IoT security spending totaled $3.1 million in 2021, yet IoT attacks are still rising. A 2021 study by Microsoft revealed that 44% of respondents experienced an IoT attack in the past two years, and half said that IoT attack volumes had increased in the same amount of time. The average cost of cyber breach rose 2.6% to $4.35 million in 2022, signifying the accelerating financial impact of cyber-attacks on business operations. As businesses move to connect their IT/OT/IoT platforms to support digital transformation, remote work and emerging applications, attack surfaces and network complexity have spiraled out of control, and they are suffering the consequences. The common reaction among IoT operators is to add layer upon layer of security products and vendors to their stack, but this only negatively impacts the security, performance and manageability of their security stack. With IoT attacks rising and their financial impact only accelerating, it is evident that IoT operators must simplify their security stack to protect their software-defined IoT. This will allow them to secure a healthy return on investment with a Results-Oriented IoT security strategy that meets their business goals.
Network complexity has outpaced legacy methods of perimeter-based network security because there is no single enterprise perimeter in today’s highly distributed business world, especially among complex IoT platforms. Many security products on the market fail to secure IoT platforms because they do not address the underlying causes of rising cyber-attacks, and they only complicate the security stack. Though they mark the progress of security to the cloud and may improve manageability, even secure access service edge (SASE) products suffer from performance and security challenges when used to secure IoT platforms. Security, performance and manageability are essential factors to stop rising cyber-attacks, and IoT operators must select and deploy solutions that simplify their security stack and enhance these factors through a single integrated platform that features peer-to-peer architecture instead of cloud-based architecture.
The answer to these problems is Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA). Zero-Trust assumes there is always a malicious actor in the network and that an enterprise network is just as vulnerable as a public network. ZTNA solutions create a software-defined perimeter (SDP) around IoT assets, making them invisible to unauthenticated users in any physical location and simplifying the security stack without sacrificing performance.

5G Smart Campus FACENS: A Reference Guide
FACENS - SCF
Head Smart Campus Facens
5G Smart Campus FACENS is a living lab program related to concept of Smart Cities created by University FACENS to support the training students, companies, industries and public sector. The student can learn by doing and they can put all knowledge in practical. The program is supported by 9 axes: ICT; Urbanization; Education and Culture; Energy; Mobility and Security; Health and Quality of Life; Industry and Business; Environment and Governance Area. It counts with several Innovation Labs focus on ESG and technology. Since 2016, more than 340 projects were developed such as: infrastructure networks and the Internet; FabLab; Integrated Security System; Smart Water; Photovoltaic Energy: On and Off grid System; Energy Efficiency; Waste Management; Weather Station; Parking Management; Central Monitoring Dashboard, Industry 4.0 Lab, 5G solutions for industry and cities, everything integrated to our “Supervisory” that is a Dashboard that takes care of the Campus, so we can apply Artificial Intelligence, IoT, computer vision, RFID, AIDC and take action to support our students, professors, industries and community. The program received many awards, like the “Top Educacional - ABMES”, and the “Innovation Award of GS1” in education category, also in 2016; “Smart City UK” in 2017 in London; in 2018 “Best IoT Implementation Europe IdTechEx in Berlin” and Top of Academy – RFIDBR 2018. Because of it, we were selected by Qualcomm we received the first IoT Reference Center in Latin America. In 2019 we received the award Inova Cidade; in 2020 and 2021 Green Metric and in 2021 were recognized as The First IoT Reference Center and 4.0 Technologies with the Ministry of Science and Technology from Brazil and the first 5G plant. It has been presented at several conferences around the world and has been featured in and outside Brazil for its innovative character. Register me
